This was our second time to eat at this restaurant. The food was even better than the first time. The pumpkin soup was outstanding. The rice dish called Pilou was fantastic as were the beans and chapati bread. The owner Christina is very charming and eager to make the experience enjoyable. This is definitely the best place to experience Tanzanian cooking.

Christina served us an authentic dinner when we visited her.
We loved it. We thought it was the best meal we had on our trip.
She has a beautiful small hotel on the outskirts of Arusha. Christina is a fun, energetic woman committed to helping the women of her area...and a super cook.

My wife and I visited Christina's, while we were staying overnight in Arusha post our safari. Yhe place offered a very intimate setting. The host Christina is a remarkable woman, who cooks personally and hosts warmly- she even bought special vegetables, since we were vegetarians! The restaurant and lodge is astonishingly tasteful - sample the lovely African paintings, the art, the earth wood tables, Masai tablecloths. The food is authentic African, the portions hearty. It's run by Christina and her nieces, and we found it the best restaurant in Africa we have visited yet.
